Just to confirm - although the achievement says "finish the game without upgrades" it cannot be unlocked by simply (ha ha, it's so tricky!) replaying the final level with no upgrades. This must be done on normal and you need to complete every level again, although the order you complete them in doesn't matter. To undo your upgrades without starting a new game, just go to the upgrade store and hit remix. This puts all your lightbulbs into storage and gives you a blank slate (also useful if you screwed up the upgrades). Good luck!

N.B. If you manage to get through your first playthrough without buying any upgrades the achievement will pop after you complete the final level.

Any problems or questions please PM me and I will amend my solution :)

Keepin' it Real and Medal of Color are best done together in the same playthrough. You need to play the game on Normal (ie. Easy mode NOT checked) and you cannot buy any of the upgrades while playing through the game.

As this site is about achievements and how to obtain them as easy as possible, here is the ultimate solution that makes these relative tricky achievements extremely easy. The game has and most importantly does not punish the use of cheats. While playing the game you need to press LB and LT to enter "cheat mode" and then afterwards enter the following button combinations to help you through the difficult situations:

Y, X, Y, X - gives you 10:00 minutes extra (max is 90:00)
Y, Y, X, X - adds a bonus life
Y, X, Y, Y - adds shield

If done correcty, the game will send a text notification on the bottom of the screen.

These cheats will become extremely handy towards the end of the game as in the last 2-3 levels not only the dificulty increases significantly, but also time can become an issue. What you need to make sure is to always have an extra life and possibly a shield. If you die, the first thing should be to add that extra life to make sure you do not get thrown back to the last checkpoint and loose sometimes 30-60 mins of gameplay.

Well, they are cheats, but honestly, they do not spoil this awesome game in any way. Using them do not disable achievements and before anyone starts flaming about whether it is right or wrong, let me be clear, to allow the use of these button combinations for players was the intention of the game's developers (not a hack!), it is NOT against any Microsoft policies and IS totally compliant with the TA rules.
